Our commitment to the children is to encourage lots of questions, nurture their participation and foster a better understanding of the Bible, Sunday Worship and our Episcopal faith. Our classes will explore God’s world through stories, games, group play, crafts, prayer and …music!!!
Sunday School Director
Infants and Toddlers: Our infants and toddlers are placed in the care of our professional and trained child-care workers. Infant and Toddler Care is on the first floor of the Parish House (Cowan’s Room) across the Close and just behind the Chapel.
Pre-school: The children move upstairs at age 3 or when they begin nursery school and join our class for 3 to 5 year olds. We use a curriculum called “Living the Good News” for this age group. We read age related bible stories from the Old and New Testament. The accompanying themed lessons include discussion questions and memory verse. The curriculum also includes crafts, games and songs related to the story. We incorporate lots of play into Sunday school time so the children are stimulated by movement and a variety of activities.
Kindergarten – Grade 5: We use the “Living the Good News” curriculum designed to follow the Revised Common Lectionary. Parents and children will hear the same scripture stories in the liturgy, in class and they can enjoy sharing the lessons they have learned with their families at home. This curriculum follows the church year, the creeds, prayers, saints and feast days of the church.
